Weather Tidbits: Autumn Equinox

It’s all autumn in this Weather Tidbits. The autumn equinox happened on September 22nd at 9:30 AM. This is when the sun is directly over the equator thus providing equal lengths of daylight and nighttime. While equinox means equal nights in Latin, the moment equal daylight and nighttime occurs in Salisbury was on the 25th. The reason for extra days of 12 hours of daylight is due to the light lingering in the sky due to refraction.
